    For some unGodly reason, win10 keeps reporting an error with a hard drive.

    Now, I know for a fact that this disk is fine, but this steaming turd has decided there is an issue, and keeps producing this annoying sliding popout reporting it.

    • "There is a problem with this drive "R". Scan now to repair it.


    I want to disable the entire thing.

    Thanks...

    Maybe there's nothing wrong with your disk, but what on it, run a disk check for the heck of it to see if pop-up msg stops:
    Bring up ADMIN Cmd prompt, type chkdsk /x /f , and press enter on your keyboard, then a
    Y, then reboot, it now checks your disk for errors and fixes them.
    :tasty:

    Have you ever had another OS installed on disk "R" :confused: Starting with 8.0 windows has this aggravating habit of thinking another OS is a disk error. On one PC dual booting Win 10 and 7, I couldn't stop the checks even by editing autocheck autochk :mad: Found out later that since it was UEFI, I had to enable secure boot, and that stopped it :eek:

    Try to disable the fastboot feature.

    before at all, check if your HDD is right. Check the SMART, mechanical or ssd.

    I'm talking about during normal operations, not during boot.

    The drive is 100% fine, it has passed all manufacturer tests etc.
    Winturd just seems to randomly toss out an error message saying it needs to be repaired.

    This is a storage drive, and is not in use when the msg appears.
    I just want to stop this so-called 'service' from functioning. I simply do not care for windows' opinion on the state of my drives.

    To recap: I want to stop the service, not check or repair the drive.

    Since the drive has never been used for a OS, the only thing Bat got is disconnect it. sorry :(

    If that happens during the normal operations the most obvious thing is that you have a bad connection, a faulty controller or something like that.

    Hardly that message will pop up w/o a valid reason

    Check the system event log for some more clues.

    To cancel a scheduled check disk, open an elevated CMD windows, type the following and hit Enter:

    chkntfs /x your drive letter:

    its not a service that can be disabled.

    its hash check that kicks the error.

    it has to be detecting something being corrupted. even if windows is doing nothing but only detecting the drive. and if drive is having any sector problems or communications problems it will throw the error.

    the event logs will something mentions something about hashes not matching or that it wrote something to a drive and got a different response then what it wrote.

    this error can also happen when the drive is in energy save mode/sleep. and drives starts and windows is trying to write to it when its before it fully spinning
    if the error happens enough times. windows will alert the user.

    Might be time to post Complete System Specs. From your previous posts You were still using build 10240. Did You upgrade to 10586 and the problem started, or have You been having the problem ? If You upgraded was the storage drive left connected ?

    Haven't done any upgrade yet.

    I will, however, change out the sata cable and see. I've run the seagate disk thing and it comes up fine, did the repair several times and I still get the stupid message.

    The drive just contains movies, and does not even really need to be plugged in, per se, so.... if I cannot disable the service I guess I'll just disconnect the damn thing and plug it in only when I need it....

    Thanks guys.:)

    i had a similar one and it turned out to be a glitch in win 10. run windows repair tool from tweaking.com in safemode with net.. takes 1 hr easy unless ssd then 35.. runs dism command takes 15 min alone.

    then remove the seagate soft and restart.. then redownload latest seagate soft for it.

    smells like usb3 drivers.. or bios and usb handling of power management.!!

    try sdi-tool.org lite version.

    Or use registry method.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager


    Change BootExecute value from
    autocheck autochk * /r\DosDevice\C:
    to
    autocheck autochk *
    C: is drive letter, what You want to disable
